The facts behind Roswell

An absolutely fascinating article by Robert Muller about the acoustic detector array suspended from balloons (flying disk microphones) to detect Soviet atomic tests - successfully, as it turned out. One set fell down in Roswell in 1947 and was obviously promptly covered up as it was a secret Cold War program - and we're still living with that conspiracy theory today.

Also from Muller is a little post about cheap information technology and how it brought down Communist totalitarianism, in a clear analogy to 1984.
